R & R

Wow...I've been away from blogland for a short week (plus a day or two) and I missed so many things. I missed the Bloglandia Ball ... Fifi has been tying up and gagging her alter ego's ... Donna started dating Paul McCartney (was that real life or in her dreams?) ... Sandra Evertson...well you just have to visit to see what she has going on there...un-believable!! Oh and one last thing...I stopped by Sylvia Anderson's blog and she has a picture of an out-of-this world papier mache piece that will knock your socks off...I saw him in person at A Cottage Boutique last Saturday where there were so many talented artists selling their wares. Pop on over to Sharon's blog and see the goodies she purchased that day. Really great stuff.

So I am taking a couple of days off for a bit of relaxation. Twice a year the hubby has work retreats and I tag along. While he has to sit in on work meetings with doctors and administration, listening to blah blah blah...or is that wah wah wah waaaahhhh (think Charlie Browns teacher) I get to do some shopping, hang out by the pool, etc etc. Sometimes I even take a nap but ssshhhhh...don't tell him.

This weekend we are dragging the kids along (much to their dismay)

to the Silverado Resort in Napa. We will leave right after school gets out to avoid the crazy traffic and get there in plenty of time for dinner...oh there are the most amazing restaurants in Napa. Saturday morning will be breakfast and then a quick trip over to Halloween and Vine. I haven't been in ages so it will be fun to see it all.

After that, back to the hotel for a little...

And then get cleaned up for dinner at Artesa Winery (adults only thank you very much!)

Sunday we will hit the winery of my FAVORITE wine...Laird's. I have never been there so I am really looking forward to seeing (and tasting) it.

Have a great weekend...I'm going to!

Hey, this post is like one stop shopping. Maybe you can be like "Talk Soup" on the E channel and recap the week of blogging for us. That is, after you have your glass of wine!!
Have fun!

Ahhhh it sounds like you will be having such a relaxing time, and fun seeing H&V too!! Enjoy yourself, and drink a glass of your favorite for me! ;)

Hi Colleen,
It was fun to visit with you at H&V. If I'd known that you were in the midst of this fabulous weekend, I would have stowed away in your trunk and crashed the Napa festivities!
